June 22: World Rainforest Day

World Rainforest Day is observed on June 22 every year across the world. The World Rainforest Day is an opportunity to raise awareness about deforestation and encourages action to protect and preserve rainforests. Rainforests are vital for the health of ecosystems and the survival of life on Earth. Because of escalating deforestation and climate change, rainforests have been vanishing, taking with them a vast diversity of plants and wildlife.

The loss of rainforests has caused many problems in Asia. For instance, places that have seen significant deforestation sustained more damage during the 2004 tsunami tragedy. Air pollution is also brought on by the burning of forests for land clearance.

Southeast Asia, which likewise has a vast variety of natural and cultural aspects, is where the bulk of persons who depend on the rainforest reside. Southeast Asian rainforests are home to elephants and orangutans, and more than 3,000 species of plant have been registered. Additionally, rainforests regulate the planet's temperature, support vast quantities of plants and animals, and generate nutritious rainfall.

Let's get together to recognize and preserve these remarkable ecosystems. Participate in tree-planting campaigns, become involved in neighborhood conservation efforts, or support organizations working tirelessly to safeguard rainforests.
